PICS OF JACK NICHOLSON FROM THE SHINING

CLICK HERE FOR THE ARTICLE 'CRAZY FOR THE SHINING'
"Give me the BAT, Wendy!"
Louisville Slugger to the noggin... Even worse than a hangover...
“Mr. Torrance, I see you can hardly have taken care of the business we discussed,” Grady’s voice speaks through the storage room door, where Wendy locked Jack inside following his stair-climbing tirade… A failed attempt halted by a swinging baseball bat. “I and others have come to believe that your heart is not in this.”

That particular dialogue is very telling… And Jack’s over-the-top performance might not be an intense actor playing a lunatic – but rather, a character trying desperately to be crazy enough to muster the energy to do such a horrendous thing... "Your heart is not in this," Grady had said. Thus Jack Torrance, and not Jack Nicholson, is seeking the right motivation to get into the part of a cold-blooded killer.
A terrifically conceived room for a possessed hotel... One never has to fret about blood stains...
The Overlook carpeting makes for the perfect toy car highway...


This scene where Jack first lectures Wendy is perhaps the best Nicholson tirade... And the most subtle...
SUMMER OF '42 with Gary Grimes viewed by Danny, who grows up suddenly in a much harsher way...

Barry Nelson plays Stuart Ullman, providing exposition that lasts two important scenes
